CASA hosts wine tasting fundraiser, Friday

The Winnebago County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program will hold a fundraiser, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, at Artalé Wine Company, 6876 Spring Creek Road. For $15 per person, you can support CASA, sample multiple wines, and enjoy appetizers. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
